The Sunday Post (#24) and Showcase Sunday (#10)


The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer, and Showcase Sunday is hosted by Books, Biscuits and Tea and inspired by Pop Culture Junkie and the Story Siren. They’re a chance to share news, a post to recap the past week on your blog, highlight our newest books and see what everyone else received for review, borrowed from libraries, or bought.

  2. It does, although I read some comments from people who didn't love it that much. Still, I try to make up my own mind.

    I've been so busy too and the weather has been unseasonably warm so it's hard to sit in reading! Have a good week 🙂 My Sunday Post

  6. I find sometimes it's difficult to read when there's so much else going on, but I hope to get back in the swing of things soon.

  16. So am I, mainly because of the reviews (good and bad) it's been getting. I'm trying to ignore them and make up my own mind.

    I read How I Live Now by Meg Rosoff years ago and really loved it and I've been meaning to pick up something else by her since. Just in Case sounds good so I may just have to add that one to my to-read list 🙂
